Red vs. Blue

 Coming up on the new relaunch of the DC universe this Wednesday. Along with the selected relaunched titles will be Nightwing. Though with a slightly redesigned costume.

Super quick rundown on Who Nightwing is... Batman's old side kick, you remember him, Robin the Boy Wonder. Well, he grew up and became a hero in his own right.  Now he patrols the streets as Nightwing while Batman took on a replacement Robin, and then another, and then another. Still after all that, Nightwing is remains good ole' Dick Grayson that we knew and loved from the "Wham Pow" days.

Since his redesign in the 90's I've always loved his black and blue costume. So many great things you can do with the blacks and make that blue bird symbol pop with the art. Now however they've changed it just a bit, with a red symbol and batman like arm gauntlets. It certainly gives him a more serious look in my opinion.

For my sketch, this was a quicky. I want to ink and color this up so I didnt get so detailed with my pencils. I already see a few things I would tweak anyway before I ink it. Lets just chalk this up to the process file.

  1. I love Nightwing. In fact, I often call myself Nightwing on internet boards and such. I believe a certain collaborator of yours has a Nightwing connection as well...

  2. Yeah I think Chuck knows a thing or two about the character. :)

  3. I have found this article very interesting. It’s a beautifully written article. The write has gathered and arranged information in a brilliant fashion. The beauty of this article is in its language and verbosity. The subject of this article is also very capturing.
